World of Warcraft: Classic artwork showing off Ragnaros

[Update #3]: I'm happy to say that World of Warcraft: Classic has now been officially released and that the servers are practically overflowing with players!

[Update #2]: Blizzard has announced they will be adding a whole bunch of new WoW Classic servers on August 26th, right before launch!

[Update]: Due to high demand, Blizzard has now added two new PvP servers!

If you're looking to create the perfect World of Warcraft: Classic character ahead of the August 26th release date, you might want to hop onto BattleNet as soon as possible. Long story short, Blizzard has now finally opened character creation and name reservation for WoW Classic!

The only real requirement is that you have a currently active World of Warcraft subscription. Besides that, all you need to do is change to WoW Classic on BattleNet, log into the game, and create a character on whichever server you like. During this pre-launch period you'll be limited to three characters per account, though once WoW Classic goes live, you'll be able to create ten characters per realm and fifty in total.

Before you go, just bear in mind that the servers might be a little bit unstable right now. I've tested it a few minutes ago and managed to log in without a problem, but even so, don't be surprised if you get disconnected a few times before even seeing the server selection.

Good luck getting your favorite names, and if you're curious about the servers themselves, you'll find more about them in my previous article. See you in Azeroth!
